    Default Would'nt of thought of there????????

    Continuing the dream species thread,got me thinking where would be a place to go flyfishing that not many people from SA would have gone or would have thought of going to. Now i am guessing not many have been here before,i have always wanted to travel through or up/down the steps of Mongolia now i discover i can go fishing there as well.

    After seeing some photos in a book that Korrie showed me recently, Patagonia has gotto be the place.

    In South Africa, some more High altitude tribs of tribs of the Vaal.
    Elsewhere, Alaska,
    Those chroncles from Alaska were truly thought and dream provoking.

    Here's an exotic destination for you:

    Kerguelen Islands in the sub-antarctic Pacific Ocean. Apparantly there are sea-going populations of brook trout, brown trout and coho salmon, and landlocked populations of Atlantic salmon.

    There is no tourism there and you would probably have to get approval from the French military and hitch a lift on ship. Anyone up for it?

    I don't have any real info Herman, just a conversation that I overheard, and some basic Googling. This would be a start from scratch expedition as virtually nobody has done it and there is no info out there.

    No tour companies, no pics, no websites. Isn't that everyone's dream?

    Here's a start:

    If you Google "Kerguelen Trout" you will find a number of scientific articles.

    I must admit this is a new one for me as well. I know some of the Froggie Navy dudes will investigate in the next week or so

    The Patagonia, Chris, refers to, is the Chilean Patagonia.

    The Western side of Patagonia is much more wild, than the eastern side.

    The Western side (Chile) has mountains etc, which makes it much more inacessible. The Eastern side (Argentinia) is more flat (plains type) accesable.
    THe Western side gets a lot more rain. A hell of a lot more rain.

    Chris, are you joining me. It is on the planning list for next year. Not sure if I will be able to fit it in, But I have pencilled it in.
